@jomjom79: Nothing is dead until the hardware dies. I plan on using my WDTV till the bitter end. :D

@KAD: Thanks, but recliq gave me rights yesterday and I will be able to post there when it's ready. Right now this firmware should not be posted there since it's targeted at beta testers first and foremost. :)

Also, recliq created new repos on the svn for me. @KAD: would you like to store your development on the svn as well?

I think it's a good idea, we'd probably need the following repo's

SMP main repo
--trunk (firmware files here)
--homebrew files (runsit.sh, wdtvlivegen3.bin.mpm, wdtvlivegen3.bin.mpm.sha1.sum)

WDTV Media Player repo
--trunk (firmware files here)
--homebrew files (runsit.sh, wdtvmediaplayer.bin.mpm, wdtvmediaplayer.bin.mpm.sha1sum)

Homebrew Kit repo (windows.bat files, etc .... fortunately the kit is the same for both devices)

I got back to this party a bit late, but am happy to learn of the work you're doing. :D

Testing 1.05.04 EXT3-BOOT Live version and seems good so far. GUI seems more responsive but that is only subjective. Initially after first boot yesterday I wasn't able to access the web end, but I tried again today and it works fine. All I did in the meantime was power off, power on, play a movie, and power off; so don't know what was up there.

Next will try out my UMSP plugins and see which if any don't work.

Thank you guys for giving this a try.

@pennhaven: if you powered the unit on and off from the remote then the webend must have worked from the start (maybe you tried it before it got a chance to load?). If you rebooted the box I am a bit puzzled why it didn't work in the first place.

Anyway, if anybody runs into similar issues (webend doesn't work after upgrade), I'd like the output of the following commands:
Code: Select all
lsmod | grep squash
dmesg | grep squash
ls -l /bi2
netstat -tpan | grep 80 | grep LISTEN
cat /tmp/messages.txt


Also, I'll need somebody to test the flashed version for Plus - it has a chance that bi2 support will not work on it (the original module in the svn has a strange vermagic string and may not load). I'd like to know if I have to recompile it as well (also, I'd need the output of 'uname -a' for the plus).

That's my theory, but I didn't know how long it should take to load. Possibly I just didn't wait long enough. Past experience with other builds though was that the web end would come up within roughly that time after reboot.

After that I had to do something else for a few hours before fooling with it again. But first I did power it off with the original remote. That was only a few minutes after I had been unable to access the web end.

Possible Web End Bug

Today when I accessed the web end with the device in OFF state the device state and available disks windows would not load on the web end. The web end page loaded but the device state and available disks never displayed, and Firefox continued to show the loading icon (spinning arrow) on the browser tab. After several minutes with no change I powered the device ON and then after a minute or two the device state and available disks loaded to the web end.

Don't know if it is relevant, but I am connected to a NAS, and IIRC at one time in the past the web end would not load completely unless the NAS was awake. Then b-rad made a code change and this issue was corrected. This may be relevant, because I have WDLXTV configured for WOL to the NAS when powering up the WDTV Live. So my nas was not awake when the WDTV was OFF but then did wake soon after I powered up the WDTV, following which the device state and available disk windows loaded.

I tried to reproduce your issue, but I couldn't:

I also have shares mounted remotely (via NFS and Cifs-Interceptor). My NAS also goes to sleep (spin-down), but I didn't notice any slowness. Also, there were no relevant changes to the webend compared to 0.5.1.1, so, if you can, see if you can reproduce this issue multiple times. Also, an output of the "mount" and "df" commands while your NAS is sleeping might be helpful (it would be interesting if you notice slowness when running those commands and your NAS sleeps).

Thanks for reporting though.

mad_ady,

This is repeatable. NAS drives are not only spun down, the entire NAS (unRAID) is in S3 sleep state, which requires WOL or keyboard or power switch to wake. So it should not be visible to the WDTV in this state.

Here is the output of the commands you requested. No slowness in executing them.

Re: Beta firmwares available (0.5.1.9) - Beta testers needed   

Postby mad_ady » Tue Oct 21, 2014 11:42 pm

Hmm, very strange - the webend function that polls the disks and generates the usage statistics runs this command:
Code: Select all
sudo df -h | grep /dev/sd


NFS shares are totally ignored.

I suspect the problem is elsewhere, but I'm not sure how to isolate it. Can you try running this command and paste back a section from before it begins to time out (to try to isolate where the timing issue is)? Also, can you try the same thing with a previous firmware version? (rootFS/root.bin is fine)
Code: Select all
time wget -O - -q http://127.0.0.1/
